In SuperSearch, My Favorites is a place for you to save favorite books, articles, and other types of records for later viewing, citing, etc. It used to be called "eShelf." In My Favorites, you can also organize items with labels (tags) to help you manage these records.
You can also save favorite or frequent searches to your Favorites, and set alerts to be notified when new materials match those searches.
While it is possible to add items to My Favorites without signing in to SuperSearch, we recommend that you sign in first to ensure that your items are saved under your account.
The easiest way to add items to My Favorites is by clicking the "pushpin" icon that appears on each search result. A pushpin with a line through it means you've already added it.
The pushpin icon appears in the upper right corner in both your results list and the detailed record view.

In addition to saving individual records, you can also save a search. This allows you to review search results in more than one sitting, or to set up an alert to get notified of new results that fit your search criteria.
After you execute a search, if you are signed in, you will see an option to click on "Save this search" to save your search in your favorites.
Search alerts will tell you when new items matching your search criteria have been added to SuperSearch. You can create a search alert immediately after you save your search by clicking on "Turn on notifications for this query" in the yellow box that appears at the top of the screen after you click "Save this search."
You will then see a pop-up box where you will input your email address, and then click Save.
You can also set up a search alert for an older saved search, as explained below.
Click on the push pin icon in the upper right to go to your favorites.
Then click on the Saved Searches tab to see your list of saved searches.
After signing in, click the My Favorites pushpin icon that appears at the top of each page. Your most recently saved items will appear at the top.
You organize results by using Labels, which are like tags, to group records into categorized lists. One of the main benefits of Labels is that you can apply multiple labels to a single record to include the same record in multiple lists.
